San Mai kitchen


Recommended Posts

This is one of two knives that I made out of my first san mai billet. The core is 1080 and the sides are 1080/15N20 93 layer damascus. The handle is stainless and desert ironwood.

The blade is 4 and 1/4"

The handle is 4 and 1/2"

I discovered I don't forge very evenly, and that it's very important to forge san mai evenly. Overall though, I'm pretty happy with my first attempt. It is going to a fellow knifemaker so he can make himself some sandwiches.

I have found it tricky to keep things perfectly even with SanMai blades as well, yours looks pretty spot on to me, nice work! Thank goodness your knifemaker pal will be able to eat again! Clint

Many of us are plagued with this problem........some of us don't forge our san-mai and rely on stock removal to cover up the failure in technique.

Looking pretty good Faye!
